2018 Quinta da Fonte Souto 'Vinha do Souto'

The top red wine from this estate, purchased in 2017 as the Symington Family's first venture outside the Douro, is in the Portelegra hills of northern Alentejo. This is a dense wine layering Alicante Bouschet and Syrah into a harmonious rich wine. It will develop with powerful textures alongside the black fruits and mineral tannins. 

55% Syrah
45% Alicante Bouschet

AGING: 70% of the blend aged 12 months in new French oak barrels and 30% in second year barrels (both 400 l barrels).

Aromas of woodland are enhanced by pine and resin notes that confer great freshness and evoke the extensive forested area of Fonte Souto. Also, a lot of spice made of white pepper and clove, as well as black cherry and floral notes of roses. Dense and powerful in the mouth with notes of spice, tea, and tobacco. The impressive structure, sculpted tannins and refined acidity, foresee an excellent development in bottle. A little reserved, needing some time to reveal all its greatness.
